Today, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) welcomed the decision by voters in Nevada to approve Question 6 to raise the state’s renewable portfolio standard to 50% by 2030, doubling it from the current 25% target.
Following is a statement by Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association:
"Nevada voters made history last night, taking a vital step that puts the state on track to rapidly expand solar installations and create thousands of new jobs. The measure will reduce pollution and lower energy bills for Nevadans in all corners of the state. The approval of Question 6 is yet more proof that voters from both parties recognize solar’s tremendous benefits and want policies that encourage its growth. Now, we need to ensure the momentum continues.”
F 6 to go into effect, Nevada voters must vote on and approve the measure again in 2020, per Nevada law.
